Rather than practice writing ABC's today, I had Grady Lee try to help Micah locate all of the letters and arrange them in the right order. Be still my pounding headache - I heard them sing The ABC's way more times than any mom should ever have to hear in one day. Or in one lifetime.
After multiple rounds off singing and a few breaks to use the broom to get lost letters out from under the stove, both boys had their board full of the ABC's. Learning while playing? I think so.
While the boys were busy with letters, Annalyse was busy with toys. She squeals. She squeaks. She gurgles. She giggles. I love it all.
If this six-month old doesn't look ready to head out for a game of tennis, I don't know who would! Thanks to my very hip and trendy college girls that loaded Annalyse up with the preppy gear.
After ABC's, it was time to paint. Allow me to translate what you see.
When I asked Micah to tell me about his picture, he declared he was "painting a picture of bunk beds at the fire station with the fireman pole in the middle." Duh - so obvious.
Sure sand gets tracked into the house. Sure I have to change their clothes a couple of times a day. BUT, I sure do enjoy the time I have to get things done without having to think twice about where they are or what they are doing!
Yup - just a life as usual kind of day. And I rather enjoyed it, actually.
